This is larger-flowered than M. wnygdalwa, the only species with which it is liable
to l>e confounded, and^it seems quite distinct, though, as in most of the allied species,
only the male flowers and fruit are known. The fruit is very like that of Jf. amyg-
d&tin*, with winch, it agrees in hasing a deeply excavated mark on one jsatweaHar
the base, $he andivideO. arillus, however, will readily distinguish it, site thftt
character be fouBd to be a variable one.
